Microsoft Confirms Windows 10 Users Can’t Uninstall the Edge Browser

Microsoft confirms that Windows 10 users will not be able to uninstall the new Microsoft Edge browser. Microsoft posted this month, where it mentioned that the new Microsoft Edge browser, namely the Chromium-based one couldn’t be uninstall on Windows 10. The Redmond group indicates that it will no longer be possible to uninstall this web browser.

The announcement is aimed at Windows 10 users, recalling the availability of Microsoft Edge (Chromium) on older versions of Windows, as well as on macOS and soon for Linux distributions.

This impossible uninstallation (at least simply and in a standard way) is related to the fact that the new version of Microsoft Edge is included in an update of the Windows 10 operating system.

Microsoft’s publication indicates that migrations from the old version of Microsoft Edge (EdgeHTML base) have been gradually deployed.

Of course, it should be noted that nothing prevents you from configuring a browser other than Microsoft Edge as the default browser. Recently, Microsoft communicated about the end of life of non-Chromium Microsoft Edge and the Internet Explorer 11 case.
